  1. First off, Toni, your hair looks FABULOUS. Love the cut and highlights!

    About my clothes and unwanted attention… they kinda go hand in hand. My eldest daughter is also obese, and has been having problems staying motivated. Sending her my old clothes as hand me downs does two things: first, gets her off the hook for the cost of new clothing… second: sparks her competitive nature knowing mom is now smaller. She hasn’t always been the most supportive of my choice to have WLS, but is now thinking more and more about how the changes I’ve made have made me a healthier, happier person.

    My sister (over 300 lbs) saw a recent photo of me and said “Holy Sh*t, what size are you now?” Which isn’t exactly comfortable, and perhaps not supportive, but I guess it’s also understandable. We had a long talk and now she’s also considering WLS.

    I’d like to thank you guys (and Bariatric Advantage) for sharing Katie’s list. I’m counseling a couple of my co-workers on their decision to have WLS, and this list really helps them both in their research and in knowing what to expect.

    And yes, Toni, that hair ROCKS!

  3. WOOT! What a cool way to start off the day! Thanks to everyone who signed up through me. I wish you all success on your weight loss journey. Bariatric TV ROCKS!

  4. The grazing comment during that video reminded me that I hadn’t eaten…so thank you! Great show guys!

  5. Thank you Lynnda, Toni, and Big Mickey for this episode! It was absolutely hilarious! All the banter back and forth was great. I, too, rcv’d Katie’s list. It sits on my desk; I read it often. The reminder about grazing was much needed, as I fight with this daily. It really is amazing how “one little bite” ten times a day can add up. In other words, all bites really do in fact count!

    Toni, love love love the new do! It is so great on you!
